Butler rushed for 1,928 yards this season and gained nearly 8 yards per carry with 25 touchdowns. Tyson led Cypress Lake High School to a 6-5 record and a berth in the Florida state 4A playoffs this season. Tyson accumulated approximately 2,000 all-purpose yards, and has been recruited by some as a running back/athlete. Butler is capable of playing a number of positions on both sides of the ball.
"I loved everything about it, it was nice, and the campus was great. The facilities were really nice, they were the biggest one that I've seen, and they were bigger than Pitt."

"I really liked coach Leavitt, I've met him before he's a cool guy, and Coach Franks is really a great guy, I feel good about both of them."
